"Evidence-based practice (EBP) has become a central part of modern physiotherapy, but questions of what EBP means in day-to-day clinical settings are often left open to interpretation. The authors of Practical Evidence-Based Physiotherapy interrogate the concepts of EBP and offer their readers a guide to finding evidence, critical appraisal and evaluation of research, and implementing research in clinical practice."--Jacket

Effective care in pregnancy and childbirth ( Book )
8 editions published between 1989 and 1993 in English and held by 9 libraries worldwide
A number of factors may explain variations in the patterns of care. Some relate to differences in the needs of childbearing women and their babies. Others reflect differences in culture, tradition, status, and fashion; The focus of this book, however, relates to another important, but rather different determinant of variations in practice. This is the collective uncertainty that exists among those who provide care about the effectiveness and safety of many of the elements of care given during pregnancy and childbirth. A vast amount of data is available to address this collective uncertainty. Unfortunately, these data are widely scattered, and must be collated and analysed before they can be useful. This collation and analysis is the task that we have set for ourselves and our collaborators. It constitutes the research on which this book is based. Throughout the book we have tried to ensure that each chapter ends with a clear statement of the authors' conclusions about the implications of the evidence reviewed, both for current practice and for future research

Assessing the effects of health technologies : principles, practice, proposals by Great Britain( Book )
1 edition published in 1992 in Undetermined and held by 1 library worldwide
The NHS Management Executive of the Department of Health is publishing this paper as a contribution to discussion about health technology assessment in the context of the NHS R & D Strategy. Recent changes in the NHS have prompted a widespread interest in good information about the effectiveness of different forms of care. Defining health technology assessment broadly, the paper discusses a range of outcome measures which could be used to evaluate health technologies and explores the design of research projects to do this evaluation. The paper also considers the use of evidence about the effects of health technologies and finally, explores how the work of assessing the effects of health technologies can be fostered in the NHS
Protease concentration in amniotic fluid at term and early childhood respiratory symptoms ( Article )
1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
Abstract: Objective : Asthma is a common chronic disease associated with altered proteolytic activity. The present study tested the hypothesis that altered protease concentration in amniotic fluid (AF), an index of airway fluid at birth, precedes early cough and wheeze. Methods : AF was collected and analysed for the following: matrix metalloproteinases (MMP) -2, -8 and -9, tissue inhibitor of metalloproteinases (TIMP) -1 and 2, plasminogen activator inhibitor (PAI)-1. Infant were followed up at ages 1, 2 and 3 years. Results : Samples of AF were obtained in 92 infants. There were inconsistent and relatively small differences in some analytes between those individuals with and without symptoms at ages one and two years. PAI-1 concentrations were reduced in association with cough at age 1 year (p = 0.035). Reduced MMP-8:TIMP-2 ratio was associated with wheeze at age 2 years (p = 0.038). There were no associations between AF analytes and symptoms at 3 years of age. Conclusion : There is heterogeneity in concentrations of proteases and their inhibitors in airways at birth but in this exploratory study, there was no consistent evidence that protease concentration at birth was important to later respiratory symptoms
